Ancient Beads Make Lovely Necklaces

All of us love beaded necklaces and jewelry, but imagine owning something ancient, with a story to tell. The Etsy shop Lord of the Beads uses ancient beads and fashions them into stunning jewelry. Above, you have my favorite, a necklace made of Egyptian agate,and  Faience beads-- a mark of the ancient royals.

The seller says, "The material used to make these beads was a highly sought out commodity of the ancient world, used for scepters and jewelry and even to add to the opulence of the tiles in the royal chambers as was found in King Djosers tomb at Saqqara. A truly dignified piece, worthy of royalty!"  This necklace can be yours for $450.

BARGAIN!  $250 gets you this gorgeous and colorful necklace made of Roman Glass Beads!

All the creations are stunning and lovely. I have always been enthralled with ancient artifacts and instead of sitting them out of the way and looking at them you can wear a one of a kind creation and make heads spin. 

As for the beads themselves, one must wonder what kind of mojo may come when wearing beads like this. It's no secret that for years people have believed in the healing power of rocks and natural gemstones.  Ancient Beads are made of stone, rocks and glass so go figure!

Although at first I was a skeptic, I had a cat wearing an amethyst necklace who had diabetes live to the ripe old age of 22.  Therefore I wonder what powers may lie unearthed in such wonderful beads.  What stories would they tell had they the power to speak?

Lord of the Beads is run by Raed Aidi, who found their first bead/stone in 1993 and has been creating every since.  From Dubai, youa re sure to find the world's riches with tales to tell.

Michael Palmer Massey Ferguson Tractor Country Artist

Michael Palmer
Vintage Massey-Ferguson Diesel Tractor & Michael Palmer

Imagine the shock and surprise of finding this gem of a tractor sitting on the side of the road.  Cindy Schafer, taking pictures of Michael Palmer,  Country / Bluegrass music artist who also goes by "3rd Gear" jumped out of the car and started snapping.

Michael Palmer
 Massey Ferguson dates back to 1847 by Hart Massey / Michael Palmer Country Artist

"That day it was hotter than hell, and we had been in the barns and around the midway at the Shenandoah County Fairgrounds  trying to find the perfect shots for Michael's website, when I passed a pile of junk on the side of the road, literally. Then I saw the tractor. I was like 'get out, now!"   He says, "Are you serious?" I was like "Hell yeah, the tractor is perfect!"

Michael Palmer

She explains the whole shoot took at the tractor's location took only five minutes, but enough to turn out some pretty good photos with her IPhone5.  She says, "Massey-Ferguson tractors never die, neither does good music so I thought it a good match.  Michael is a regional musician playing bars, fairs and festivals near Martinsburg, WV but also into Virginia and Maryland.  Something about the tractor just felt right."

Michael Palmer
Probably 1973 or Prior Vintage Tractor

They never did find out the year of the tractor, but it's definitely 1973 or prior. "As old as dirt like me," jokes Schafer.   Palmer lives in Martinsburg, WV with his wife and three kids and can be hired for local events, fairs, festivals, or parties. He plays a Yamaha 6 string.
